This power plant burns coal and uses water from the nearby Mississippi River to cool its turbine generators. Most of the steam from the lower areas is from the cooling towers, but some of it is from Libery Paper which is right next door to the power plant. The two smokestacks are about 50 stories tall, just to give an idea of the size of this place.
